Embion is a chemical process technology EPFL spin-off, commercializing a novel catalytic process that allows the use of sustainable resources in the form of 2nd generation lignocellulosic biomass for producing food ingredients, chemicals and fuels. Our process helps reducing the carbon footprint of these products by reducing the amount of industrial waste being disposed in land or released in the atmosphere by up to 80%. Our technology platform helps diversify from the use of fossil fuels to more environmentally friendly processes as well as meeting demand for healthy food ingredients.
